Walked to the Te Papa museum, spent a couple of hours there, and walked back to the ship. It was a Sunday, so not much else to do if you don't fancy the cable car.

You really don't need to take an excursion. We took the shuttle to town and did the Te Papa Museum, Cable Car, and Botanical Garden on our own. Easy to do and only costs us $5 for everything.

A very wet day, and the fact that we were in Wellington on a Sunday, meant that we stayed onboard. We have visited Wellington many times before and would recommend the Maritime museum.

We booked a private tour and were driven all around the city, up to the look outs and around the beaches. There is a shuttle bus which takes you from the port to the city centre with two stops. Wellington was excellent.

Fantastic place. We have two days here. On the first day I met up with a friend I worked with many years ago. We had a great day and the weather was fantastic which was a bonus because Wellington's weather always gets a bad rap. Second day I spent cruising around the shops. It's a nice city, quite compact and easy to get around. Read Less

Loved the cable car ride to see the view and also visit the Museum, which had original trams and many other objects related to the early development of Wellington. The wharf area is also a nice place to visit.

We did the hop-on-hop-off bus on our own...it was worth doing and was inexpensive. Enjoyed seeing their big 'claim to fame' the world's steepest street. It was a two minute stop...got the picture, moving along.

We booked our own Weta workshop tour and it was very interesting. In hindsight I'd probably do something else, but it was an interesting tour. We had some nice food at a cafe nearby during the hour of free time. It was a nice drive out to the Weta workshop and we also went to see the bucket fountain and had some nice coffee. Wellington reminded me a bit of Hobart. Read Less

Went on free shuttle into town. Rode cable car to top of hill then walked down through Botanical gardens. Stopped for a cup of tea in the rose garden then caught shuttle bus back to ship after a ride around Wellington.

We walked the downtown then on up to the government buildings. Had a fun lunch with sandwiches & local pastries. We toured the national museum but weren't overly impressed. The museum was big on messaging but when one leaves, you've learned little to nothing about the geology of New Zealand, the original flora & fauna, or early migrations. You will see information on native peoples at the time the Europeans arrived. Lots on the early Europeans. and lots of exhibits about how the Maoris culture was destroyed and the natives were swept aside and how non-native species were introduced an almost completely devastated local birds and plant species.
